This year is a very special year. As Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary, we also celebrate the 75th anniversary of Canadian Airborne History. July 1st was the official launch of my 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion Virtual Museum. This virtual museum is dedicated to the pioneers of the airborne brotherhood that paratroopers share today.
I will try to give you reason to visit often, as this project will steadily expand as I continue to add more exhibits and information over the next year. I am currently working on many more biographies and photographs for the “Soldier” section. The site can be viewed in 100 languages, so if you speak another language, please let me know if the translation is reasonable. I’m not perfect, therefore feedback is always welcomed.
Turn on your speakers so you can listen to the Last Post when you view the “In Memory” section or listen to a wartime classic song in the “Romance and Jewelry” section. If you feel confident with your knowledge about the Battalion, then take the fun quiz and see how you do.

If you read a biography about a member, then you have taken the time to keep their memory alive.
